Who We Are

We are experts in helping children with learning disabilities.

  • Horizon Academy is the only private, fully accredited school for students with dyslexia and other Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) in the Kansas City area.
  • Our staff is made up of specialists who understand a child’s individual needs and are trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach.
  • Affiliation with the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning enables us to use multi-sensory, evidence-based teaching methods, specially designed to help our students succeed.

We focus on the whole child.

We are results driven.

  • After students acquire the skills necessary to be successful, they typically return to a more traditional school or learning environment.
  • Many students who have transitioned from Horizon Academy are now on the honor roll, graduating from college, or holding professional jobs.
